    Short-term Effects of Population-based Screening for Prostate Cancer on Health-related Quality of Life

    J Natl Cancer Inst 90: 925-931, 1998

       


    Conclusion – The screening nihilists have suggested that widespread screening for prostate cancer is an anxiety-raising practice without proven benefit. This study shows that screening does not provoke undue anxiety among participants. Indeed, there was significant satisfaction among participants with negative screening tests and participants who underwent prostatic biopsy that did not disclose prostate cancer. 

      


    This article should quell concerns that heightened awareness of prostate cancer has materially reduced the quality of life of men participating in screening programs.
